Emergency crews battled a house fire Wednesday afternoon on Pritchard Avenue.

Firefighters were called to the 800 block of Pritchard shortly after 1 p.m.

Smoke could be seen billowing out of the blue house as firefighters douse the flames.

A platoon chief at the scene told CBC News no one was hurt, but it appears the home is a total loss.
